Welcoming the beautiful little Emilia to the Umbilical Love Photography blog!
This little one was a treasure to have in our natural light studio here in Albury!
Are you ready for a journey?
Emilia was over 2 months old when we did this session. Now most photographers would freak out at the thought because this is a completely different session to a newborn session. Newborns, typically between 7 and 14 days old when they do their session, still love to curl up in those womb like positions and they also pretty much just eat and sleep… oh and poop! Perfect for photography sessions! … Except for the poop….. So when a 2 month old comes along, I have to think about it differently. There is absolutely nothing wrong with doing a newborn session older then a month or so. I mean, they are still a newly born baby! 2 months old is young haha! But as I said we just have to think about the session differently
Little Emilia stole my heart, and clearly her parents, as soon as she came into the studio. Those eyes! Just check them out for yourself! And don’t even get me started on the eyelashes, her lips and her chubby legs! IN LOVE!! She was super happy and smiley and was enjoying time with her beautiful parents and curiously discovering the new place she was in and the stranger that was pointing a black thing at her face (that me!). As the session went on she started to get tired (as babies do) and after a feed she really wasn’t interested in having a sleep, although we all knew it was what she needed (some babies just won’t listen 😛 )
Instead of us fighting her and getting frustrated that she wouldn’t go to sleep, or stay asleep, we simply let her be. And thats where the most beautiful photos came out. The moments when she was being cuddled and held by her parents, with her eyes half shut, but comfortable in their arms. She was in a place of comfort in that moment…
So here’s my guarantee, that even if your baby is older then the typical newborn session age, we will still get beautiful photos.
“Who are you to judge that Kelsey?” – Well I know, because its sometimes in those moments when comfort happens that we get the best shots. Bubs just want to feel safe and feel loved. They are smarter then we think 😉
Whether your new miracle is 7 days old or 3 months old, its never to late to capture beautiful moments of them just how they are. Because we all know how quick they grow before our eyes
